Description
Our Home and Hospital

Our home is situated in the historical part of Dunedin, near the beautiful Woodhaugh Gardens at 1027 George Street, in North Dunedin.
Our home has its own unique history & character. It consists of North & South wings and has two floor levels with elevator. We are equipped with a modern commercial kitchen, a spacious fully functioning dining area & plenty of comfortable lounge spaces. We have areas with bookshelves for quiet library reading, and a piano for our music enthusiasts. We also have a relaxing outdoor area for those sunny summer days.
South Care is welcoming everyone who wants to make it their home.

Our Residents

Our residents are encouraged to maintain their independence and hobbies through professional support, physical activity, and carefully tailored program planed for each individual.
Our residents have a right to be involved in the events that surround them in our Home. Residents live with us for years and are a part of our big Woodhaugh family. They interact with our staff and build meaningful friendships and bonds that mean so much to them. Diet profiles, organised activities, regular concerts & performances, bus trips and outings, family involvement, and other important factors are just some of the things helping our residents get on with their everyday lives.

Our Staff

Our skilled staff consists of a diverse team of individuals, with different backgrounds & cultures. All of them work together to provide the best, quality care for all our residents. Our nurses are smart & highly trained, our caregivers are kind hearted and skilled with experience, and our management team is approachable & reliable. It is our duty to make sure everyone is well looked after and feels right at home.

Our Services
We provide rest home level services, short term respite, health recovery care & hospital level services. Our facility operates 24/7 with our nurses always being on call. We have regular visits from the doctors & other health care professionals to keep up to date with all health needs. Any additional services can always be arranged to suit an individual.

We are transparent about all events and activities that are happening around the residents. We encourage families & friends to stay in touch, to visit more often and to participate in the lives of their loved ones. Join them in a game or an exercise class, have a tea party with them once a week, or a quiet reading session and a book club discussion.
